Batch of real fun cabs
« on: August 10, 2017, 11:22:26 PM »

The selection here is a set of 3 of the shape I have fallen in love with in a bloodstone that has great depth in it, a fossil coral and a stone canyon.  The yellow crazy lace was a cab that had a hidden vug so I adapted the cab to make a nice drop stone for a pendant.  Several Marfa plumes where I wanted to capture the single plumes.  An end slice of a marfa plume that I just had to incorporate the bubbly into the cab in a natural top.  A nice Condor Agate oval.  A piece of the high grade Chrysocolla that the guys were selling for 15.00 a pound in Quartzsite last year - nice stuff! And a piece of the Salina Plume I picked up in Quartzsite too.  I really want to see if the guy that has the mine ( i heard he hand digs it all, would let me come up and dig my own some time he is there at the mine).  Enjoy.

Nice morning treat. Experimenting with shapes is not only fun it quickly develops your cutting skills and confidence.Nice set of stones.

Some very nice material.  You develop a style when you start cutting for the stone rather than the template.  If you do the metal work it also gives you ideas as to designing a piece.  Nice work.
